LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 855, as introduced, Ramos. Judicial holidays.
Existing law designates state holidays, including, among others, the 4th Friday in September, known as “Native American Day,” and the 2nd Monday in October, known as “Columbus Day.” Existing law adopts those state holidays as judicial holidays, with certain exceptions, including Native American Day.
This bill would remove Native American Day from the list of holidays that are excluded from designation as a judicial holiday. The bill would also exclude Columbus Day from the list of judicial holidays.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: YES   Local Program: NO  

The people of the State of California do enact as follows:


SECTION 1.

 Section 135 of the Code of Civil Procedure is amended to read:

135.
 Every full day designated as a holiday by Section 6700 of the Government Code, including that Thursday of November declared by the President to be Thanksgiving Day, is a judicial holiday, except September 9, known as “Admission Day,” the fourth Friday in September, known as “Native American Day,” the second Monday in October, known as “Columbus Day,” and any other day appointed by the President, but not by the Governor, for a public fast, thanksgiving, or holiday. If a judicial holiday falls on a Saturday or a Sunday, the Judicial Council may designate an alternative day for observance of the holiday. Every Saturday and the day after Thanksgiving Day is a judicial holiday. Officers and employees of the courts shall observe only the judicial holidays established pursuant to this section.
